When the publish to vector operation is finished, the cursor is always display as busy circle. This is a cursor display issue. Actually, the publish operation is done, and you can move the cursor, then it will change to normal style.
I saved a model yesterday and it took 12 minutes to save this file. This is not acceptable save time for me. I am doing what you are asking about the circle clock with the busy signal and watching when it exactly is done saving. I can tell exactly when it is done by by watching the destination file. As I am watching the destination svg file, the computer puts in the file size when it is done. The file size reads 0 while it is processing the save and then 12 minutes later ithe computer puts the file size on the file while I am watching it, so I knew exactly when it was done. I think your IS dept needs to look at this and find a way to save faster. I am running 12 gig of memory now with quad 4 processor, so the computer is not the problem. Under 5 minute saves would be acceptable to me.
Is your Inventor file vefy huge? Publish to vector operation will call the Inventor ASM server to do the translation. It really taks some time.
Usually, we will look at the published SVG file size, it is 0 byte at the beginning, and it will change to correct file size after publish to vector even now the cursor is still busy.
Thank you for posting your feedback in Newsgroup.
According to your description, this should be a preformance issue when publish to Vector. Thank you for the post and your feedack is counted.
It's more like the software preformance issue. And upgrade the hardware may speed up the whole publish time.
I am not sure about your working OS, we recommand to use x64bit OS. Here are some tips: especially for LOD, you can create some substitute LOD in inventor and insert the LOD file in publisher. That will save some time.
Please also see attached zip file to get the hardware recommendation.
Im experiencing the same problems and I agree that it is not acceptable. If I output the same model to vector in a competitive application it takes around 5 seconds. You really should develop the vector output a lot.
